The New Hampshire Liquor Commission is assisting the NH Department of Homeland Security and NH Army National Guard to help transport millions of pieces of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to first responders.
Upon the delivery of millions of pieces of PPE, the NH Department of Homeland Security recognized that it needed a very simple yet critical item to help this equipment reach first responders – boxes. With nearly $800 million in annual wine and spirits sales, Homeland Security turned to the Liquor Commission to utilize the thousands of boxes that liquor arrives in.
The NHLC Division of Enforcement and Licensing personnel will be escorting a five-ton military transport vehicle driven by the NH National Guard to multiple NH Liquor & Wine Outlets to pick up boxes at the following locations until they obtain enough boxes to reach their goal. Then, within 24 to 48 hours, phase two of the initiative will have the NHLC picking up thousands of more boxes from the DHL Supply Chain Warehouse in Bow in an NH Liquor & Wine Outlet tractor-trailer to deliver to the National Guard Reservation.
The NH Liquor Commission also launched an effort to raise $125,000 for the restaurant and hospitality industry.
